The portion of the I-tal stew was so small that I could eat it in two bites. I was hungry again, half an hour after the meal.The owner/cook then... More

You show up early or call in pescado ahead. You sit down a couple hours later at sunset to sauteed ackee, greens, and parrotfish. It's all so fresh you begin to weep. Incredible, like a postcard.

Loved having a meal here after a day at the beach. Oliver, the cook, is a chill dude. His food is awesome - including fresh juice. Very affordable experience, and great view of the bay in Porty. Would go back again and again.

This was the most powerful and awesome experience. Having a meal prepared from local veggies fresh from the gardens, having beautiful men who were full of the country's history and fresh juice and herbs while sitting on a natural beachfront is priceless

For 26 years Oliver has been serving very good Ital vegetarian food to residents and visitors in Port Antonio. My husband and I stumbled upon Survival after eating at the very popular Anna Banana next door. We wish we found Survival first. It has now become a regular place for us to get delicious rice and peas with fish (when... More
